Masons Episodic 2014-2015

2014 â��Masonsâ�� begins shooting
Last year I began consulting on an episodic titled Masons. The young director was respectful, courteous and grateful. Qualities one does not often find in this business. So, because of those qualities, the fact that I loved the script and the fact that there were no vampires, cops or zombies AND it was an historic piece, I took on the task.
With this production, since I am now teaching film and art full time, I began pre-production by lots and lots of research, which I LOVE!
Thank God for Pinterest and the internet.
I was able to get my directorâ��s 'LOOK book' together, hunt done a few re-enactor groups in the area and visit Pinterest boards for more pics and ideas!
For a traditional artist who hated the computer when it first came into our homes, I canâ��t imagine my life without it!
2015 â��Masonsâ�� episodic continues....
A few weeks ago I decided to go on the set of Masons to the location in Ambridge at the Vicory Museum. It was great. Speaking to the curator there I learned much more about 18th century garment prints than I learned all year in research. She was fabulous!
So with one-eye working, for one-day and only one-measurement I created this pair of men's 18th century breeches. While being very ill for days, and my left eye swollen shut and being the size of a golf ball, the breeches had to be made. Despite the situation, I had fun with this challenge. LMB
The Costume design workshop was a huge success during ReMake Pittsburgh Now you can Book the 5-hour FASHION / COSTUME presentation & workshop for your next school event, community organizations, theatre classes, film study, etc. If you ever wanted to know what it's like being a fashion & costume designer in Pittsburgh the first 90 mins is a PPP presentation along with actual costumes & accessories from actual productions. There's a short break, then the workshop begins. A quick overview of fashion illustration, pattern-making & design. Then actually sewing a small fashion project. All supplies are provided and included in the cost of the workshop.
Created from cosplay rubber & silk dupioni fabrics. Made to resemble the US Steel building in my hometown of Pittsburgh PA. The dress was made for the Pgh Film office Academy Award Competition and as an entry for Project Runway.
August 2020 So I have given in to the new norm of society and began making Covid-19 corona masks. I said I wasn't going to do it but, I am. Using vintage fabrics and lining them with flesh tones cotton fabrics.
Vintage 80s fabrics I especially like the retro WWII flyer plane fabric
Used a quilter's circular cutter worked very well for the pattern I decided to use.
